What is Mimos Pillow?



Mimos Pillow is specially designed to prevent and correct cranial deformities during babys first few months. It is designed for baby to sleep and rest facing up position, as recommended by experts and the campaign for teh prevention of SIDS sudden infant death syndrome. The pillow increases the area of contact beneath the head, reducing the pressure by up to 4 times.

 

What is the Effect?

Facial Asymmetry and Skull Shape Deformation. If baby flat head deformational plagiocephaly is not corrected early these undesirable craniofacial characteristics may grow into adulthood.

How to Prevent?
Do more with tummy time, spend less time in car seat and bouncing chairs, vary head position during nursing and feeding.
Relieve the pressure by using MIMOS PILLOW is proven to be extremely effective at preventing deformities.

Mimos pillow is not designed to help you position your baby in any certain way.
It works by allowing a natural non forced sleeping posture and relieving the pressure from the back of the head.

Just place your baby head on the center of the pillow cavity and allow him to sleep as she please as long as the head stays in the cavity. She will turn the head from side to side and that is a very good thing since she is reinforcing her neck muscles and by that reducing side preference. We believe this is a more sensible strategy than forcing the baby to stay on a certain position.

We strongly recommend to use our pillow case / cover specially made with breathable material to ensure the effectiveness of the pillow.

Flat Head Syndrome
What is Flat Head Positional Skull Deformities
is the flattening of one or both sides of the head due to constant pressure on the skull.

It happens very quickly, especially in the first 3 months of life when the skull is still malleable and the head and brain are growing very fast.

During this time, baby spends long hours sleeping and lying on his back.

If baby’s head stays in the same position for long periods of time, with specific areas lying against a flat surface, then those parts of his skull may become flattened.

The positioning of the baby’s head is one of the main reasons for the appearance of these deformities

What causes a Flat Head?
Constant Positioning
When babies lying on their back with their head stay or turn to the same position constantly. E.g. in a pram, car seat, baby rocker, swing or activity mat.

Premature Baby
The skull of the premature infant is softer than a full term born baby.
They are more prone to positional plagiocephaly since they spend most of the time on their backs without being moved or picked up due to their medical needs and extreme fragility after birth.

Tortociolis Wryneck
is a twisted neck”, a condition when the head is tilted to one side while the chin is turned to the other side. It is also called wryneck. The symptom can be detected during first 2-4 weeks.
More info can be found through this link: http://www.babycenter.com/0_torticollis_10912.bc

Multiple Births
Crowded room condition limit the movement on babies resulted in the same position for long.

Why is it a Problem?
In recent years, clinical studies have been done to investigate what long term effects might be associated with a diagnosis of head flattening and/or torticollis. More studies are being done to get more data and information, but current literature gives evidence that infant with plagiocephaly and/or torticollis may have other associated problems such as:


A high risk for learning delays and developmental delay
Increased need for special services when the child reaches school age
Orthodontic and TMJ issues
Scoliosis
Visual disturbances including visual field defects, and astigmatism, auditory problems
Psychological/social issues

Facial Asymmetry and Skull Shape Deformation
If baby flat head deformational plagiocephaly is not corrected early these undesirable craniofacial characteristics may grow into adulthood.

In the moderate to severe cases, there may be

Eyes and ear misalignment,
One cheek appears fuller than the other
Forehead on the affected side is protruding

Does it Affect Brain Development?
An important study by Speltz and Collett, published in 2010 concluded that “Deformational plagiocephaly seems to be associated with early neurodevelopmental disadvantage, which is most evident in motor functions” This was followed up with their most recent study, which was published 2011 in July that stated ‘Toddlers with deformational plagiocephaly continue to exhibit developmental delays relative to toddlers without deformational plagiocephaly’.
